The only thing those problems have in common is the computer. Have a shop check the codes.

If the transmission is not shifting, could it be the vaccum modulator?

when was the last time the tranny had a new filter put in with new fluid? if the vacuum module was bad, it would suck all the tranny fluid out of the tranny and into the engine from vacuum and you would be smoking out the tail pipe..

running out of fuel , likes to burn up fuel pumps.
they are fuel cooled and fuel lubricated. so dont do that. or $$$$$$$

one way is to pull the battery neg cable for 5 min.

even harder learn mode (not yours)

5th gear shifter linkage reverse

can i assume you pulled the side plug on tranny and the level
is right there? or gone way down, ever do a 50k service? to it?

M/T tranny (not auto) what engine? the m./t varies by HP of ENGINE.
If its really in 5th ( i bet not)
if the RPM rises fast that is called clutch slip
yes, clutch bad.
if not in 5th actual rpm will rise fast too. slip,
if the other gears wroke like 4th at wide open throttle up hill
gee the chutch is good.
so its not going in to 5th (for lots of reasons)
but 1 reason , is easy.

-AX 4/5/15 transmission
this tranny has a shift tower. (that thing on top that the shifter lever
fits in to)
most tranny that fail to actual shift into gear
is caused by a $1 plastic part failure
so pull the shifter off top of the shift tower.
and look, is the plastic buffer parts all bad, missing, cracked or
destoryed, sure they all end there... all.
i can also remove the shifter, lever.
and shift to 5ht by hand, and see that it DOES.
it either does, or does not.
if it does, the lever parts are bad.
that simple.
see part 61 (im guessing which of 5 tranny it is , )

A750F transmission problem

it might be in limphome mode.?
why not scan it , and see what DTC errors there are, from TCM.
or do all the tests in the FSM for , ON CAR SERVICE.
FSM= factory service manual.
ever try a tranny shop>?

The key to service is doing the steps in the correct order
1: tranny ground trap good. (missing or damaged)
2: scan it.
3: check pump pressure and do the stall tests stated in the fSM.
4: level checks, and if wrong ATF in tranny ?
5: inputs to TCM wrong, ???? ECT, TPS, VSS1,2,3
6: reset TCM and try to see if learn mode , corrects bad shifting.

OTTOMH, there are more. lots more, A/T are complex.
lots to fail.

New 30rh transmission was installed in my 97 4.0l jeep wrangler and it shifts in all gears except for 3rd! even when it downshifts it goes through all gears but 3rd? please help

why not ask installer that.
btw , the TCM can fail and do that.
that is either a separate module or part of the PCM.

The TCM does all shifting. electronic, shifting it is.
the TCM has scan code errors, did you scan it and the PCM for errors.
if not , why not.????
2>3 shift failure.

even a loose or corroded , trans wired connector can fail.
or the tranny ground strap is missing.
saw a guy replace a tranny 3 times. and all 3 times failed.
he never knew the trans must be grounded perfectly .
his was missing, others simply broken, others rotted away.

what we do is make sure the TCM is sending the correct
voltage single 0v.12v, etc. to the transmission solenoids.
if not, the TCM is bad, or is in limphome. or inputs wrong.

TCM have what is called limphome that can skip gears.
my 4speed skips 2nd , in limp, by DESIGN !
all this is covered in the FSM, why not read it.
or look at it's there too.

i also have a switch box, i made., that attaches to the tranny
allowing me to make a manual transmission,
if that works the tranny is good.

the TCM will in fact mess up if its inputs are wrong
just like all computers do.
inputs are, TPS, VSS1 , VSS2, engine heat. shift selector switch PRNDL , and others.
The TCM shifts by the state of inputs. period

one cool thing, some cars pre 98, or so
the TCM is separate box. and with it unplugged
the shifter is now a manual transmission car. (for test or?)
have friends driving like this for 3 years.

Not shifting

Any transmission trouble code will put the trans in second gear
and it won\'t shift.
Key on-off-on-off-on without starting the engine will illuminate
the check engine light .It will flash out the codes.Should see a 55
code ,5 flashes,a pause then 5 more. Any codes other than 12 and
55 need recorded for further diagnnosis.
I was thinking that turning the key on and opening the throttle wide
open 4 times within 5 seconds (engine off)clears tranny codes,not sure about that tho. You might try it then drive it and see if it shifts,although
as soon as the malfunction happens again it will go back into limp mode.
Tranny slipping or a slow shift or converter lock up malfunction along
with many other things will trigger this.

High idol all the time& tranny problems

Check for vacuum leaks on the high idol. You have a speed sensor or wiring issue with the tranny. Will need to be checked somewhere with a computer to know for sure on the tranny.
